Yep! You're right. It was posted on Oregonlive.com and he got close, but some errors on the year, the engine, etc. He wanted to know how the name came about and I explained the SBC being referred to as a "mouse motor", and the 327 being used in Corvettes. That morphed into it being a small Chevrolet Corvette engine in his posting. Still didn't miss by a lot. My neighbor's little blue '49 Austin got some press, and his faux injector stacks became real mechanical injection too!
